Reports emanating from british tabloid has it that Arsenal’s £25 million pounds bid for Riyad Mahrez won’t be enough to tempt Leicester City.
As Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger continues in his bid to fortify his squad against next season with purchase of Leicester City stars, the offer tabled for Mahrez might not be up to his asking price. It is believed that Arsenal followed up on Vardy’s release clause by submitting a £25 million pounds offer for the African man.
Arsenal are delighted with the fact that the Algerian international is keen on making the move, but the offer of £25 million pounds looks ridiculous in today’s transfer market for a top player like Mahrez. To acquire the services of a tested and trusted creative midfielder like Mahrez, an improved offer has to be tabled for the player who was undoubtedly the best African player in the premier league last season. A bid of £30 million could be enough to get the African.
Mahrez was the chief orchestra in the midfield for League champions Leicester city last season, and you can trust Leicester will be reluctant to let him leave for a cheap price. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is the busiest of managers in the transfer market this season, with his plans to raid Leicester City of their top stars.
Wenger needs to table an improved bid if they actually want the services of Riyad Mahrez.
